    UPDATE: We're looking for some inspiration on this frigid afternoon, and we found it in this red-hot duo — they're definitely worth taking a second look. This story was originally published on November 8.

    Meet Natalie and Elliot Bergman, the genetically blessed siblings behind the red-hot Chicago band, Wild Belle. Their retro, psychedelic-pop tunes, like "It's Too Late," have fans swooning all over the globe—the Windy City included. Not familiar with the dynamic duo? You will be soon. With a badass new music video and an album launch this spring, even wild horses couldn't keep these naturally born artists from stardom.

    Despite an aggressive tour schedule (bonjour, Paris!), the Bergmans carved out some time to show off their fierce style. In our family-share photo shoot, Natalie and Elliot heat up the chilly shores of Northerly Island with rocker looks curated by stylist sis, Elise. Sporting a mix of vintage pieces and wares from local boutiques, the bro-sis team made Chicago's lakefront the coolest place to be, despite the cold. And, with the exception of one hot chocolate break, the twosome put on brave (okay, gorgeous) faces throughout the entire shoot. Now, that's what we call one heck of a performance.
